Three con artists are paroled by the FBI, with the intent to make them work for the Bureau. Together, they have an edge that ordinary agents don't have. However, they can't go too far for they always risk being thrown back to jail. Written by

Players was a 90's update of the Sting-like con artist/scam series, which dates back to shows like Mission Impossible and
Switch. The three characters were an interesting mix, and the cons were both complex enough to be believable but simple enough that you didn't sit there later and go, "Huh?" NBC basically under-promoted it and subjected it to frequent pre-emptions in
its Friday time-slot. Boo.
